Interesting that my son passed through that morning for the 8.20 am(approx) flight to Liverpool with no delay. How do you manage such large swings in demand over a short period?

Still no news on what is happening to FR at Bfs? Flights still on sale. You would have thought that if they are pulling the plug, they would have taken flights off-sale by now.

Just never book flights with FR. No need to worry then what they do or don't do....

I am hoping that if they do close the base they will continue to operate the flights with non based a/c ( with the exception of FAO )

On the contrary, the cashflow is very useful. Eventually they might need to issue refunds but that can be done at a financially convenient time. And a certain percentage of customers won't remember to request a refund...

Whilst what you are suggesting does not surprise me, if they are doing that it says a lot about their culture and why they now face issues.

Any talks of Wizz Air adding any new routes from BFS, I see they have been adding flights to other UK airports the past week or two.

There has been a lot of official announcements about Ryanair base closures, yet BFS still escapes the cull?

I have booked late October so hope the November date suggested earlier, if closure is a must, is correct

Jet 2 are just grabbing at everything whilst ezy looks like they haven't got the resources or are too late to the party.

Easy could run Lanzarote all year round, with TCX down to only one weekly (2 last year) throughout summer this year and FR cuts....
